    Windows 7; HP Envy 5530:

    Previously had an Epson scanner which offered the capability of scanning a text document, "reading" the scan, and then copying the text in order to paste it into another program for editing purposes. Have not found that capability on the 5530; only that it will scan a document to .tff -- which, of course, is not the same and does not offer the ability to actually edit the text.

    Was I mistaken in believing that the HP Envy 5530 would have such a basic, common capability? Or does it? And, if so, where does one locate it?

    Thank you / appreciated.

    Thanks for the links! Which OCR app did you install? Wanted to know what you settled on and how it is performing.
